Greenhopper Days Remaining in Sprint Gadget

Hello, the dashboard gadget is showing '2 days remaining' - it's currently 8:45am on 1st May, and the sprint ends 3rd May 6pm - that is three working days remaining.

Can you tell me what I am doing wrong?

Hi Chris,

The 'Days Remaining in Sprint' gadget currently uses midnight for calculating the days. So it will show 0 days remaining from 00:01 on the 3rd May.



That's a shame as the design of that gadget is a great visual cue for people how long is left, and it's a bit useless unless it depicts working days.

Our perspective on this having hit this problem also:

If a team has their sprint scheduled to finish on a Friday, they would include this final Friday as a work day in the sprint (i.e. this gadget should still show "1 day left" at the end of the Thursday). If my understanding is correct, and assuming the code uses midnight for the calculation, but it should really use midnight at the end of the final day (using midnight at the beginning of the final day would be a bug, surely)?
